Maybe the most influential sci-fi book ever written. The first cyberpunk novel; without there would be no Akira (Which rules) or Matrix (which sucks). This is a tale of cybernetically enhanced hackers, all powerful mega-corporations, and the seedy underbelly of humanity & how these things interact with each other.— Jake
— From Sci-Fi & Fantasy
Hotwired to the leading edges of art and technology, Neuromancer is a cyberpunk, science fiction masterpiece--a classic that ranks with 1984 and Brave New World as one of the twentieth century's most potent visions of the future. The Matrix is a world within the world, a global consensus-hallucination, the representation of every byte of data in cyberspace... Henry Dorsett Case was the sharpest data-thief in the business--until a vengeful ex-employer crippled his nervous system. Now a mysterious new employer has recruited him for a last-chance run. The target: an unthinkably powerful artificial intelligence orbiting Earth. With a dead man riding shotgun and Molly, mirror-eyed street-samurai, to watch his back, Case embarks on an adventure that ups the ante on an entire genre of fiction. The winner of the Hugo, Nebula, and Philip K. Dick Awards, Neuromancer was the first fully-realized glimpse of humankind's digital future--a shocking vision that has challenged our assumptions about our technology and ourselves, reinvented the way we speak and think, and forever altered the landscape of our imaginations.
